Return of the seastars
We are so excited to be seeing these creatures back in our waters. For several years, every comeback of the vibrant purple seastar was soon devastated by the "seastar wasting disease" and they literally disintegrated. Finally after at several years, their numbers are increasing. We are seeing more and more of the purple seastar, the mottled starfish but...still no sunflower stars.
We'll be keeping an eye out for them this summer. Come along and search the Salish Sea with us this summer.

I'm really glad that you guys are looking out for these tiny organisms. It will definitely bring out a positive result for the environment. I can only wish that more people see the importance of these sea creatures. They tend to underestimate their value and collect them for monetary worth. I'll be looking forward to more of your success and continuous effort to help out these creatures.
